Exquisite New Hotels Opening in 2024

January 16, 2024
Arslan

The must-see new hotels in 2024 are debuting worldwide, from urban centers to rural hideaways and beachfront retreats.

So, this year, where did you go? Which hotel we suggested you check out for 2023 was the most exciting? Maybe the Atlantis in Dubai, with its Beyoncé-endorsed opening, felt more like an Olympic opening than a hotel christening? On the other hand, is it possible that you reserved a suite at Son Net in Mallorca, the most popular bike-lovers' paradise in Europe, or that you traveled to London to witness the opening of the $1.76 billion Raffles OWO refurbishment, which we were the only ones to preview?

Other noteworthy additions were Violino d'Oro and La Palma on Capri, which only opened about a year after it initially made the vow to accept visitors. This year's most-delayed prize goes to the Dorchester Collection's Middle East venture, Lana, whose opening date is now February 2024.

Even so, the ultra-luxe location should stay on the list as a must-see for another year, provided it can accommodate the initial few visitors as scheduled. In addition to holdovers like that, we've searched the world for the top 50 five-star new hotels opening for 2024 and started making travel plans for the upcoming year.

50 Best New Hotels Opening in 2024

Amyth of Nicosia, Cyprus 

New Hotels Expected launch: April 2024

 Rates: TBD

Due to the surge in interest in Cyprus, locally owned Thanos Hotels is introducing Amyth of Nicosia, its second hotel. Constructed inside the historical Venetian Walls of Nicosia, the ten-room boutique aims to provide guests with all the amenities they anticipate from visiting this historic island nation.

That means plenty of Old Town vibes, from its landmark villa—which features architectural elements like tiled floors, a grand staircase, and decorative ceiling and wall works—to its proximity to Byzantine churches, Ottoman landmarks, the Archbishopric of Cyprus, and the Cyprus Ethnological Museum, housed in a 15th-century mansion. Maria Neophytou, a Cypriot interior designer, created the area. Head to the new hotel's central courtyard to unwind in the shade of the olive and lemon trees.

Anantara Koh Yao Yai Resort & Villas, Coast of Phuket, Thailand

New Hotels Expected launch: January 2024

 Rates: Suites from $1,272

luxury hotel openings: This is not the Phuket you love or hate—it's not the overdone, overstimulated, overbuilt Phuket. This beautiful limestone island is visible as it emerges into Phang Nga Bay. The Anantara Koh Yao Yai Resort & Villas, located 20 minutes from Krabi and 45 minutes away by boat from the previously mentioned party town, offers golden beaches, space, elegance, and solitude.

Most of the action occurs in the tropical "out there," despite the hotel's 148 suites, pool villas, and penthouses (including wellness villas with hydro pools and spas). The adjacent Laem Had Beach is a major attraction; the Koh Yao Yai sandbank is a natural wonder that shapes the surrounding ocean's curves. Divers are quite welcome as well.

Anantara Mina Al Arab, Ras Al Khaimah, UAE

New Hotels Expected launch: Q1 2024

 Rates: Doubles from $515

Luxury hotel openings: Geographically close to Dubai (only 45 minutes north), yet a world away, is the Anantara Mina Al Arab Ras Al Khaimah Resort, a 174-room beachside facility in a more untamed setting (call it RAK, as regulars do). "It's a perfect contrast, and it can work well," says Christopher Wilmot-Sitwell of Cazenove & Loyd.

With overwater villas built on the waterfront lagoon, a spa that pays homage to the operator's Thai heritage, and clubs for kids and teenagers, this is the place to come for some outdoor R&R. Although you can choose to engage in some exhilarating water activities, it's best to spend an afternoon in a kayak exploring the neighboring mangroves and seeing turtles, flamingos, and dugongs in their natural habitat.

Atzaro Okavango, Okavango Delta, Botswana

New Hotels Expected launch: March 2024

 Rates: Doubles from $1,380

The newest development to Botswana's Okavango Delta will provide a comparable haven in the middle of the chaos: Atzaro is located on the southern border of the abundantly productive Moremi Game Reserve, giving access to the delta and the savannah. It will be run by the well-regarded safari expert Beks Ndlovu of African Bush Camps. "He's always loved the Okavango, and it's always been his home," exclaims Jules Maury of Scott Dunn Private.

The new hotel's ten rooms have outdoor "star beds" for naps under the stars, private pools, and midcentury-inspired furnishings. Right now, the property is in the ideal location for lodges—it's precisely the right size to be a feasible buyout target for a larger company. Better yet, an educational initiative has been started in the nation's capital by the business's ABCF foundation.

Banyan Tree Higashiyama Kyoto, Japan

New Hotels Expected launch: Q4 2024

 Rates: TBD

Kyoto, the ancient center of Japan, is already home to many upscale lodging choices. However, with its most recent opening, Banyan Tree hopes to provide something different. There will only be 52 rooms at Banyan Tree Higashiyama Kyoto, near Kiyomizu-dera Temple. Kengo Kuma & Associates, a local firm, designed it with an eye on preservation, and it is situated on an urban hilltop. The new hotels feature mature trees and bamboo encircling an ancient retaining wall. But the real value added is the vistas of Kyoto from this unusual vantage point.

Banyan Tree Veya, Valle de Guadalupe, Mexico

New Hotels Expected launch: February 2024

 Rates: Doubles from $599

luxury hotel openings: Banyan Tree's subsidiary for wellness, Veya, is entering the American market by establishing its second facility. The 30-villa new hotel, which has a private plunge pool and was created by Mexican architect Michel Rojkind, is located in Valle de Guadalupe, Baja California, about 90 minutes from the U.S. border. Arquitectura designed the interiors of the villas. That translates to a design that is as elegant and silky as you can imagine. However, it's also natural. Serenity is now required on sixteen grounds filled with rolling hills, botanical gardens, and Grenache grapes. However, this show's star is the spa. Enjoy the best Mexican wellness, including traditional temazcal and hydrotherapy from a desert spring.

Bom Bom, Príncipe, São Tomé e Príncipe

New Hotels Expected launch: May 2024

 Rates: Doubles from $680, half board including drinks

luxury hotel openings: More along the lines of boom boom. This is an incredible property in an unmatched, if challenging-to-access, spot: a little bluff on Príncipe, the smaller two islands that make up this country. This is HBD's most recent attempt at environmentally conscious, sustainable travel. Mark Shuttleworth, a South African businessman, created the company. When he landed on this island in a private aircraft, he discovered that the jungle, which resembled the Galapagos, would be cut down to make room for a plantation producing palm oil. The next step is reopening this former midmarket lodge as an expensive, eighteen-bungalow beachside retreat. He decided to utilize his riches to stop it.

Casa Loma Beach Hotel, Laguna Beach, California

New Hotels Expected launch: Q2 2024

 Rates: Doubles from $799

luxury hotel news: West Coast-oriented Property management firm Marc & Rose Hospitality is well-known for managing the Arizona Grand Resort and the Hotel Carmel. The 70-room Casa Loma Beach Hotel, formerly the Inn at Laguna Beach, is the company's newest project to open in Laguna Beach. Compared to other neighboring competitors like Montage, it is ideally situated: only five minutes walk from Main Beach and downtown, yet perched atop a rocky cliff, new hotels offer maximum views of the Pacific Ocean from every room (as well as its pool and rooftop bar).

The reinvention, done by California-based Electric Bowery, aims to evoke the surf culture that is so popular here gently. Think custom desks and beds that are shaped like surfboards.

Hotel Casa Lucía, Buenos Aires, Argentina

New Hotels Expected launch: January 2024

 Rates: Doubles from $670

luxury hotel openings: Housed in what was once the highest structure in Latin America, the 20-story Edificio Mihanovich in Recoleta was designed to resemble a lighthouse, welcoming newcomers to the city when it was finished in 1929. This remarkable concept is the newest initiative from Spain-based Unico Hotels. Reopened after a year-long renovation, the rebooting of a former Sofitel is a 142-room luxury project designed to anchor it in the city (balconies with outdoor showers to maximize the view) and in the present (look for artwork by the esteemed Argentine artist Cristián Mohaded). The new on-site cocktail bar, Le Club Bacan, is a clear highlight, with an exceptional wine list and Martin Suaya cocktails.

Corinthia Bucharest, Romania 

New Hotels Expected launch: September 2024

 Rates: Doubles from $600

luxury hotel news: Bucharest, the capital of Romania, has a challenging life. It has come to be associated with the abuses of autocracy and the destruction of several old structures, even entire neighborhoods. However, Bucharest has seen the emergence of a growing luxury sector in more recent times. The Corinthia Grand Hôtel du Boulevard is a prime example. Originally constructed as a hotel in 1867, it has withstood many challenges and, with careful restoration (there isn't much competition), will once again be the city's top society hub. This new hotel iteration is a boutique endeavor with only thirty rooms, multiple restaurants, a bar, and a ballroom.

Corinthia Rome, Italy

New Hotels Expected launch: March 2024

Rates: Doubles from $800

The other significant opening from the Malta company is the former Central Bank of Italy facility, established in 1914 and located directly on Parliament Square in Rome. The 80,000-square-foot structure will reopen in the spring as a 60-room new hotel. Carlo Cracco, a native of Vicenza, has been appointed to supervise F&B, which includes the rooftop. The facility will also feature a luxurious spa, a hallmark of the brand since Corinthia London launched, boasting one of the most incredible underground spas in the city. The position is unparalleled, situated off Via del Corso, in the center of the renowned Golden Triangle, and with Piazza Navona and the Pantheon right outside.

Four Seasons Cartagena, Colombia

New Hotels Expected launch: January 2024

 Rates: Doubles from $1,000

luxury hotel news: A brand-new Four Seasons is the best evidence yet that the Cartagena of the Reagan years is long gone. The Club Cartagena, Casa Ambrad, Teatro Colón, and the Claustro de San Francisco are four historically significant early-20th-century structures surgically joined into one by the adaptive reuse project. But instead of reducing them to shells, the idea kept their unique personalities and courtyards intact, resulting in a 131-room new hotel that provides a sampler of Colombian atmosphere and architecture.

new hotel openings

Four Seasons Resort & Residences Cabo San Lucas, Baja California, Mexico

New Hotels Expected launch: Early 2024

 Rates: Doubles from $1,600

The Cabo del Sol development is the focus of a frenzy of construction on Los Cabos's east coast, and the Four Seasons will make a splash when it opens here in early spring. Put aside the ridiculous moniker and focus on it being isolated from the mayhem (and waning allure) of the peninsula's southernmost point. Instead, you'll be seated on the Sea of Cortez, a popular whale-watching location from January until the end of March. New hotel 96-room Resort will have three oceanfront pools, a massive spa with ten treatment rooms, and even a fitness center run by Harley Pasternak, Oprah's go-to personal trainer.

Our Habitas Santa Teresa, Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica

New Hotels Expected launch: Spring 2024

 Rates: Doubles from $684

Santa Teresa, a former hotspot for hippie surfers on Costa Rica's coast, has developed much in the past ten years. Still, introducing Our Habitas, a company based in Mexico, has brought back its allure for affluent tourists. Wilmot-Sitwell states, "It tries to pick up on a vibe, and this is somewhere that used to be for a bloody good surfer who'd take five college mates there with him."

She also points out that access to this location is quicker and more straightforward because of Costa Rica's much-improved network of scheduled charters. Standard rooms are available, but the ten opulent tents nestled among the beachside foliage are the finest alternative. Visit this place to enjoy new hotels, ATVing through the untamed countryside, or snorkeling at the Malpais underwater volcano.

The Hotel Maria, Helsinki, Finland

New Hotels Expected launch: Q1 2024

 Rates: Doubles from $496

Sworn in by three-time Winter Olympic gold medallist Samppa Lajunen, who turned to real estate after amassing a fantastic collection of medals in Salt Lake City, the 117-room new hotel Maria boasts a distinguished history. (He won all three gold medals in the combined Nordic events.) Located a 10-minute walk from the city center, Lajunen united four architecturally notable buildings erected between 1885 and 1930 in the Kruununhaka district to create this hotel, hoping to introduce an ultra-luxe offering to the Finnish capital for the first time.

Of particular interest is the new hotels emphasis on comfort; with 38 suites and guestroom footprints exceeding 460 square feet, it promises to offer more than double the average size of typical unique hotels here.

Todos Santos Boutique Hotel, Baja California, Mexico

New Hotels Expected launch: January 2024

 Rates: Doubles from $1,343

Yes, there is yet another new hotel in Los Cabos, but this one is a little different because it's not in the all-inclusive resort village of Cabo San Lucas but instead in the surfing hotspot of Todos Santos. Visit this town to stroll around the somewhat dusty, leisurely pace of life—a wonderfully Mexican experience in contrast to much of the area to the south.

There are just ten rooms, each uniquely decorated with a mural created by artist Neftali Espino, and each one is meant to contribute to the narrative of the peninsula. A heated pool, rooftop terrace, and food and beverage options are available, with specialty drinks from Licorería Limantour, Mexico City's most lauded bar.

Khao Lak Marriott Beach Resort & Spa, Thailand

New Hotels Expected launch: May 2024

 Rates: From 1,200 per person per night.

An opulent new hotel, 283-key Marriott Beach Resort & Spa, is being built in Khao Lak, a popular tourist destination in southern Thailand, 90 minutes from Phuket. Its beachside location is close to the iconic diving destinations of Surin and Similan Islands, the Samet Nangshe Viewpoint, and the James Bond Island from the movies. However, since this is Thailand, eating is the main event. Six restaurants within the Resort will provide regional cuisine. Goji Kitchen, the flagship restaurant, will provide genuine regional cuisine and fresh seafood.

Kibale Lodge, Volcanoes Safaris, Uganda

New Hotels Expected launch: January 2024

 Rates: TBD

Volcanoes Safaris, which specializes in gorilla and chimpanzee trekking, has been a trailblazer in ecotourism in Uganda and Rwanda since the late 1990s. Their most recent Kibale Lodge, only eight rooms and a villa, is situated next to Uganda's Kibale National Park, also known as the planet of the apes, and only thirty minutes away. There are 1,500 chimpanzees in the park, new hotels provide sweeping views of the snow-capped Rwenzori Mountains (Mountains of the Moon). Additionally, it's only a short drive—about an hour—from the Kasese airfield and the historic town of Fort Portal.

Mandarin Oriental Mayfair, London

New Hotels Expected launch: February 2024

 Rates: Doubles from roughly $1,170

Indeed, there is already a Mandarin Oriental in London, located in Knightsbridge, next to Harrods, just a short drive from this new location. But as the hotel chain is well aware, Mayfair is the most sought-after destination for affluent tourists, which validates the addition of this 50-room new hotels. It is an entirely new construction that starkly contrasts the more well-known establishments here, including larger, airier rooms and upgraded amenities like an 80-foot indoor pool. In addition, Akira Back, the renowned chef behind Yellowtail in Los Angeles, who is making his first trip to Britain with his Japanese-inspired cuisine, will serve food and drinks.

Melote House, Lepogo Lodges, Lapalala Wilderness Reserve, South Africa

New Hotels Expected launch: January 2024

 Rates: From $12,000

More and more safari visitors are reluctant to go in the Jeep with strangers. The word of the game is privacy, and Lepogo Lodges provides families that desire an estate with eight bedrooms for exclusive usage. Melote House is a unique non-profit resort in the Limpopo Province of South Africa. It is intended for family vacations spanning multiple generations and offers unparalleled views of the Lapalala Wilderness. This carbon-neutral project has twelve beds, with dirt walls taken straight from its hillside. Is your family now even more prominent? Reserve the nearby cottage for an additional four beds.

Montage Cay, Bahamas

New Hotels Expected launch: Q4 2024

 Rates: TBD

Matt Lowe's Cay, a former pirate stronghold, is the location of this new private island refuge. After speculatively launching as an Aman, the 48-acre new hotels site will now be resurrected as a Montage hotel. "The Abacos are remote but easy to access, and the Bahamas hasn't had anything spectacular in a while," says John Clifford of International Travel Management. There will only be 50 rooms on the property, all with private pools; day-trippers on yachts will find it easier to visit the many beach cafes and eateries thanks to the 46-slip marina. How can I get to it the best? A seaplane straight from Nassau to the Montage Cay dock, undoubtedly.

luxury hotel news

Nobu Hotel, Restaurant and Residences Toronto, Canada

New Hotels Expected launch: Summer 2024

 Rates: TBD

Next summer, the quickly growing Nobu Hotel brand will debut in Canada. Above the iconic Pilkington Glass Factory, two residential buildings will house the Nobu's new hotels, Restaurants, and Residences. With just 36 suites, the hotel is a more boutique endeavor than the project's stunning 660 residential units. The 45-story towers' urban resort area will feature a lounge and spa services. Naturally, a Nobu restaurant will also be there; it will occupy 15,000 square feet over two stories and feature a sushi bar, two private dining areas, a bar and lounge, and an outdoor terrace.

Nujuma, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve, The Red Sea, Saudi Arabia

New Hotels Expected launch: Q1 2024

 Rates: TBD

The Red Sea is where the first wave of Saudi Arabia's conversion into a tourist haven breaks. The Ritz-Carlton Reserve Nujuma contributes 63 villas with one to four bedrooms, including eighteen branded homes. It will be the first Ritz in the Middle East and one of only five Ritz-Carlton Reserves globally. The Resort is inside the Blue Hole, a collection of exclusive islands that may be reached by boat or seaplane. Five-star amenities, such as multiple swimming pools, dining options, retail space, an opulent spa, and a conservation center, will be available.

Odera, Tinos, Greece

New Hotels Expected launch: May 2024

 Rates: TBD

The first genuinely upscale new hotel on the peaceful, undeveloped island of Tinos, which is best known as a spiritual pilgrimage site because of the massive Our Lady of Tinos church that dates back to the 1830s, is being operated by Athens-based Trésor Hospitality, which already runs several luxury hotels throughout the islands and mainland.

This is a significant departure from Mykonos and Co. (Most visitors are unaware of this location because it needs an airport or landing strip. Located directly on its private beach, this brand-new 77-room hotel was created by Greek architects Panos Nikolaidis and Alexandros Triantafyllidis. It is only a short stroll from the old town or Chora. The Odera Residence, a nearly 1,200-square-foot, one-bedroom home with an additional layer of solitude, is the most excellent spot.

One&Only Aesthesis, Athens, Greece

New Hotels Expected launch: Q1 2024

 Rates: Doubles from $818

To add to new hotel openings, This One&Only arrival stands in sharp contrast to the Resort that follows on our list, which is a mainland location on the Athenian Riviera. The strip was formerly a popular destination for jet-set travelers in the 1960s, but it had lost popularity recently, primarily because there were few five-star hotels nearby. This hotel seeks to tackle that problem directly. The 51-acre location is only 30 30-minute drive from Athens and is situated in a beach and woodland reserve. The property is home to various villas, bungalows, and houses; however, the 15,000-square-foot Villa One, with its pool and deck that extends to the waterfront, is the place to stay.

One&Only Kéa Island, Cyclades, Greece

New Hotels Expected launch: Spring 2024

 Rates: Doubles from $1,874

Reaching this, the closest Cycladic island to the Greek capital only takes an hour by speedboat—a wise decision for the ultra-luxury hotelier based in Dubai, which makes it convenient for both weekend travelers and long-haul visitors (though the natural flex is to hop on the hotels' helicopter for the transfer so that you can arrive both splashily and in complete privacy).

Situated on a 160-acre beachfront property on the island's west coast, the 63-villa new hotel will operate on the same premise as most existing One&Only locations, which function as independent resorts inside a destination. There will be five bars and two restaurants; one is a re-creation of the Greek Chora, where you may eat al fresco daily.

Park Hyatt Los Cabos at Cabo del Sol, Cabo San Lucas, Baja California, Mexico

New Hotels Expected launch: July 2024

 Rates: Doubles from $1,000

This 26-acre golf-focused Resort, the first Park Hyatt in Mexico, is another addition to the East Coast development Cabo del Sol. It will be located within the neighborhood, which boasts two miles of excellent beachfront facing the Sea of Cortez. The Mexican architecture firm SOMA created all 163 of the rooms, which have plunge pools and ocean views.

The wait will be worthwhile: new hotel Construction has continued sporadically following the announcement of the hotel's plans in 2017. Now that a direct rival is about to start shop next door, it will be well-positioned for an exciting challenge. Which one of the two will gain the distinction of being the most desirable property on the east coast? Well, at least until Aman's Amanvari supposedly lands close as well.

Pensione America, Forte dei Marmi, Tuscany, Italy

New Hotels Expected launch: Q2 2024

 Rates: TBD

One of the first houses ever constructed in the posh Italian coastal town of Forte dei Marmi at the end of the nineteenth century was later converted to serve as an American army hospital during World War I. In the 1920s, it was reopened as a pension, which is how the hotel got its name.

Reimagined as a new, ultra-luxe adults-only establishment a century later, by hotelier Sara Maestrelli, the location will be a sibling property to the properties she already owns and operates as part of the boutique chainlet Collezione Em, which includes the recently opened Violino d'Oro in Venice. Redesigned and stripped down to the studs, it will be an oasis-like retreat just a short stroll from the posh beach clubs that line the vast expanses of sand here. The most significant spot is the new standalone villa, a duplex with a pool.

hotel opening

Rosewood Schloss Fuschl, Salzburg, Austria 

New Hotels Expected launch: Q2 2024

 Rates: TBD

Although "castle" is frequently used, the Hotel Schloss Fuschl can best be described as a property akin to a fortress. Situated on the namesake lakeside outside Salzburg, this old pile dates back to the 15th century. It has been reimagined as a Rosewood, the brand's second property in Austria. There will be 98 guest rooms in its new design, including 46 suites and six chalets. So, don't count on a gut feeling. Rosewood is updating as needed while maintaining and safeguarding the historic features of the estate. Along with "world-class restaurants," the recently renovated hotel promotes Asaya, Rosewood's well-being brand. Of course, there's a heated outdoor pool with views of the lovely lake.

Santo Mine Oia Suites, Santorini

New Hotels Expected launch: Q2 2024

 Rates: Suites from $730

Just because this new hotel is situated in the center of Santorini's overtourism doesn't mean you should ignore it. This home is located back from the bustle in a reasonably quiet area. It offers a fantastic view of the setting sun setting over the caldera, cut out of the cliffs on the site of an abandoned stone mine directly above Ammoudi Bay. It's an adult-only establishment with exciting features, such as an elite wine cellar and an outdoor gym with views of the Aegean. (Try some fantastic and underappreciated locally produced vintages from places like Argyros.) Additionally, every one of the 37 rooms includes a private pool or Jacuzzi.

newest luxury hotel

SHA Mexico, Quintana Roo State of Cancun, Mexico

New Hotels Expected launch: Q1 2024

 Rates: TBD

The arrival of SHA in Mexico, postponed because of the pandemic, is now imminent. With 100 apartments and private homes in Cancun, the health and wellness concept—whose flagship is situated on the Spanish Med in Altea—is expanding significantly. The mansion is on seven hectares of greenery, steps from the ocean. Alejandro Escudero, an interior designer, and the Mexican architecture group Sordo Madaleno managed the property's aesthetic.

The brand's distinctive "Method," which combines "natural therapies and advanced medicine to improve and prolong health and longevity," will be served to you once you arrive. This entails individualized, up to 21-day health regimens that concentrate on advanced aesthetics, holistic medicine, regenerative and preventative medicine, nutrition, inner harmony, physical performance, and sexual wellness.

Singita Milele, Grumeti Reserve, Serengeti National Park, Tanzania

New Hotels Expected launch: May 2024

 Rates: From $26,250

Singita, one of Africa's best and oldest tour operators, grows again with Milele, a brand-new five-suite villa in Tanzania's renowned Serengeti National Park's Grumeti Reserve. The villa sleeps up to ten people and is geared toward large families and groups looking for exclusive safari experiences.

Every suite features an outdoor shower, a walk-in dressing room, a terrace or deck, and expansive views. There's a potential fight starter: two of the suites have Jacuzzis. But the movie room, infinity pool, outdoor sala, and boma make the villa's common areas even more unique. After you check in, Singita naturally wants you to depart. Personalized game drives, bush walks, spa services, and post-trip wine tastings are all offered.

Six Senses Kyoto, Japan

New Hotels Expected launch: Q2 2024

 Rates: TBD

As mentioned, hoteliers are famous in Kyoto, and Six Senses brings a wellness component. This is the brand's first trip to Japan, and it's embracing everything thoughtful and Japanese. Imagine a central courtyard, a calm garden with winding walks, and a relaxing spa. The famous Gion district can be reached on foot from any of the new hotel's 81 rooms. The Resort incorporates traditional medicine and Japanese Zen into its unique Six Senses menu, while the earthy, organic architectural design attempts to soothe.

Six Senses La Sagesse, Grenada

New Hotels Expected launch: May 2024

 Rates: Doubles from $1,300

Grenada is a little-known island nation in the Caribbean that is more famous for its spices than its lodging options. (Its domestic commercial connections are restricted to flights to several airports.) With its 71-room facility set on 38 acres in the southern part of the island and designed to resemble a typical fishing town, luxury spa brand Six Senses intends to draw tourists there.

As a tribute to its most well-known export, reused nutmeg shells will line the paths in the gardens, and all of the rooms will be low-slung and never higher than a native palm tree. The main draw, however, is the nearby beach, La Sagesse, one of the area's best. It's a picture-perfect white sandbar that lies on quiet, deep-blue waters.

newest luxury hotel

Six Senses The Forestias, Bangkok, Thailand

New Hotels Expected launch: Q2 2024

 Rates: TBD

In Bangkok, a verdant forest of native trees? Why not? Six Senses's new Forestias line delivers the best urban and environmental living. Nestled amidst a purpose-grown forest in Bang Na, the 60-room hotel and 27 homes offer quiet trails, tai chi, yoga, wellness programs, seasonal festivals, and dining options. Connecting the development's numerous rooms, amenities, and medical facilities is a treetop canopy walkway that winds through the forest, home to over 500 distinct plant and animal species.

New Hotels Expected launch: January 2024

 Rates: Doubles from $3,127

The 14-villa complex is the work of Sonu Shivdasani, the founder of Soneva's passion project. "He's brilliant," remarks Jules Maury.

It will provide cutting-edge spa services in a wealthy environment; reserve a room at Castaway, the Maldives' first floating villa. Each villa will have a cook, a butler (also known as a Barefoot Guardian), and sliding roofs that allow guests to enjoy stargazing. Enroll in activities ranging from guided snorkeling tours led by marine biologists to picnics on empty beaches.

newest luxury hotel

Southern Ocean Lodge, Kangaroo Island, Australia

New Hotels Expected launch: Q1 2024

 Rates: Doubles from $3,400

Four years ago this January, the island off the coast of South Australia was ravaged by devastating bushfires that killed countless of its namesake creatures and destroyed many buildings, including this hotel. The 25-suite property has been rebuilt in the exact location but with a slight tweak so that those rooms make the most of the views from its clifftop site, more than 130 feet above the crashing ocean waves. The significant addition to Southern Ocean Lodge 2.0 is the brand-new, almost 7,000-square-foot, four-bedroom Ocean Pavilion. It is an upgraded alternative to a penthouse perched in its secluded location, with plunge pools, fireplaces, and equally swoony views.

St. Regis Longboat Key Resort, Sarasota, Florida

New Hotels Expected launch: Spring 2024

 Rates: Doubles from $1,200

It will feature 800 feet of private beach, 168 guest rooms, and 26 terrace suites. But that's only the beginning. In addition, there will be a 20,000-square-foot spa, four dining options, a lazy river, and a four-acre saltwater lagoon experience with stingrays, Galapagos turtles, and exotic fish.

Tawana, Moremi Game Reserve, Botswana

New Hotels Expected launch: May 2024

 Rates: From $4,390

In northern Botswana, Tawana fills a gap to form an ideal circle of opulent safari lodges run by Natural Selection. It adds eight suites to the company's portfolio, including Jack's Camp, Tuludi, and North Island Okavango.

The Vineta, Palm Beach, Florida

It's a comeback to the moniker it had as a hotel during its prime when this light-pink structure was a byword for opulent hospitality.

Typical of Oetker, plans call for reducing the number of rooms to allow for fewer but larger ones (41 instead of 53) and reinventing the interiors with the help of Paris-based designer Tino Zervudachi, who has been commissioned by clients like art dealer Ivor Braka and Princess Marie-Chantal of Greece for his quiet elegance.
